Join us for this special presentation with Rabbi Mark Sameth, author of the book The Name: A History of the Dual-Gendered Hebrew Name for God.
Counter to everything we grew up believing, the God of Israel was understood by its earliest worshippers to be a dual-gendered, male-female deity. So argues Mark Sameth in his new and meticulously researched book. Join us for a fascinating online talk and Q&A session with the author to learn and discuss. Wednesday, June 23, 7pm PST. Free and open to all.
